LOVE Pennant Parade Wedding Card

My friend, Lorri Heiling from Control Freaks Swappers, did a WONDERFUL pop-up birthday cake card for our organized Convention Swap.  I loved it!  I thought it would make a perfect wedding cake pop-up card, too!  So…of course with my son's recent wedding, I had to make one for them using the colors of the wedding!



The base is Night of Navy cardstock and I embossed the top with Elegant Lines Impressions Folder.  I stamped Stampin' Up!'s Pennant Parade image four times with Melon Mambo ink and punched with the Pennant Builder punch, then placed them across the front.  The LOVE letters inside the pennants are from the lower case Sweet Shoppe stamp set with Night of Navy Ink and punched with the 1/2 Circle punch.  There are just two bows of White Bakers Twine on each end.  I added Happy I do day from Word Play in White Craft Ink in the bottom corner.  But…inside is the magic!  lol!



Once you open the top flap, it pulls up the Wedding Cake from the bottom pocket!  Yes, sorry, I used some of the retired swirls from Brides Designer Paper.  Wish they would bring that collection back!  It was so great for weddings!  On the top are 3 Melon Mambo flowers with the new Tiny Mini Brads in the centers.  Now…I wanted to decorate the cake with flowers, too, like their real cake, but because it pulls up out of the pocket, you have to be careful not to put anything on it that would catch.  So…I left it very simple and let the DSP be the star.  lol!


So…here is a reminder of what their real cake looked like at the reception!



Come back tomorrow…it's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge time again!  See you then!
